And all is once again right with the world. The loss of 18 pounds has removed the issue I had with the space intrusion of the new, wider console. And the Grand Touring, while not as creamy-smooth as the MX-5 Miata-based Fiat 124 Spider Lusso we reviewed last month, strikes a perfect balance of refinement and reflexive handling. The Grand Touring is the sweet spot.

Again...that's all standard. And our tester had but one option...the Interior Package, which adds $425 for a red engine oil cap with the MX-5 logo, stainless steel door trim plates and alloy pedals and footrest.
Bottom line with $835 destination charge: $31,325. EPA fuel economy estimate 27 city/34 highway.
A bargain. A steal, in fact.
Let's be clear: There is no bad MX-5 Miata. The Club is a great choice for a weekend toy. But if you're planning on using your MX-5 Miata as a daily driver, the Grand Touring is the one to have.
